Another little dose of the Clarins Spring 2016 collection here – with the addition of two new shades to the Clarins Lip Perfector family. These are the Clarins Lip Perfector Spring 2016 shades in 07 & 08. Catchy names… I know.
The Clarins Lip Perfector are basically the ideal flattering lip balm/gloss product. Not as sticky as a gloss, but more hydrating and more liquid than a balm. They’re the sort of naturally plumping, adding colour tint and generally evening out without looking too ‘done’ sort of lip product. They’re an every day favourite of mine, especially when in an ‘I don’t know what to wear’ sort of mood as they always work and always look good.
These two new shades are both slightly bolder shades than the usual lip perfector – where they’re normally very much in the pink/nude family. Where here we have shade 07 – a warm dusky pink and 08 – A deep berry with a faint hint of shimmer. The 07 shade is that sort of 90’s type colour – think MAC Faux type of thing. A very wearable everyday shade which give a definitely wearing something sort of look, without being high maintenance. Like a nude lip turned up a couple of notches. Then for the berry shade of 08 this is a definite lip colour option, with a little more of a sheer finish than a normal lipstick thanks to the formula. Ideal if you want to try a berry lip but maybe your lips need a bit of TLC before you show them off with such a strong shade. This is a good ‘entry level’ dark lip.
It’s always good to see new shades being added to a lovely product and the Clarins Lip Perfector line as they really are a great product and one of my most used lip colours for day to day. Of the two new Clarins Lip Perfector Spring 2016 shades my favourite is the paler rosy 07 one. You know, in case you were wondering…!
